This looks amazing what a cast
Strange that Lanthimos is not collaborating with his screenwriter buddy on this one.
But it looks great no matter what.
Rachel Weisz, as ever, is everything. can't wait!
This looks utterly bonkers
is that James Corden who gets a much deserved tomato bashing?
I loved this, hilarious and all three actresses + Nicholas Hoult do amazing work. Full of weird fish eye shots and the costumes lol great.
I'm ridiculously excited for this. Colman's performance looks like an absolute hoot.
Oooh I can’t remember the last time I was anticipating a film this much
Olivia Colman really is wonderful, isn't she?
I thought this was AMAZING. Great performances (even from Emma Stone) and an absolute zinger of a script.
Olivia Colman is excellent.
A total 11/10.
This was such a joy, all three leads were phenomenal, the writing was on fire and I love how it turned our expectations upside down. She seems to get a lot of stick but Emma Stone was really, really good in this. You can see why she was initially put forward as Lead for the Oscars because her character is technically the main one, although all of them get ample screen time.
Easily one of my favourite period films - putting the dull politics in the background and focusing on one giant bitch fest instead
Oh as for Olivia - oh my. After a slow burn start where I thought it would be a solid but fairly low key performance she gets the chance to really ramp it up. She is absolutely everything in this, every little nuance and expression is so perfect.
Give her the fucking Oscar now!
Queen of pissed off Queens
Emma Stone is excellent tbh. I didn't realise there was a lot of ill-will towards her, but she's been good in everything I've seen her in. She's a particularly talented comic actress I think.
This film was incredible. A period drama I can get behind. Give Olivia Colman an Oscar.
I thought Emma Stone was good in this.
I was a little perturbed by her ears in it though.
She's had her ears pierced twice but she was wearing 1 earring in each ear in the film.
Maybe it's a bit OCD of me but I was surprised they didn't magically hide the 2nd piercing - or was a double piercing de rigeur for a scheming scullery maid in the court of Queen Anne?
Wonderful! So quotable and all three performances were just fantastic. I feel Weisz is doomed to be underrated next to two much showier performances, but for me she was the core of the whole movie.
It did drag on a bit in the final act, but a strong start to 2019 for me.
this opened at #2 in the UK with $5m that's really quite ridiculous for a film like this, The Lobster made less than half that in total! It's also at $20m in the US and the box office success should all but guarantee those Oscar nominations in every category
I liked it, I didn’t think it was the life-changing 10/10 people are saying.
Colman is magnificent in the showiest role, but I think Weisz just inches the acting honours for me, given that she had the much harder task of standing out in that company. Stone is also very good.
I suspect at least some of those people might have had a nasty shock when they got to the cinema if they were expecting to watch Olivia Colman playing the Queen. I know that my Mum wanted to see it but after hearing Olivia talk about fingering on The Graham Norton Show, she seems rather less keen.
saw this last night. maybe it's cause i haven't watched an amazing period comedy in a while but i loved it. proper laughed a few times (mostly at the abuse hurled at emma stone) as well but everything about it (from the cast, to the design) was pretty delicious -
even if the ending with stone back to where she started from only in a pretty dress was rather on the nose and bleak, or maybe all the more because of it.
yorgos is truly one of the utmost exciting directors these days.
echoing the colman love. i have proper loved since her wonderful turns in fleabag and, obviously, the lobster.
I loved her first! She was the best thing about Beautiful People back in the day...
Overall some great performances from Olivia, Rachel and Emma but it was a slog to sit through and I found myself drifting off at points. I liked the fisheye lens direction as if we were peeping through a keyhole watching them. Very clever. A solid 7.
That's when I started to live for her too. She's HILARIOUS in that
RUB MY LEG
So many “cunt”s. And the BUNNIES <3
Did 'rub my leg' mean 'perform cunnilingus'?
I AGREE WITH SHEE
@ameraal could you edit your post? that's a reasonable spoiler in the first sentence for a film only just out!
not quite sure what you mean (or the exact wait time before discussing the synopsis) but i've put in a spoiler just not to give you a reason to pull my lipstick next time you're in the top.
Well that was rather superb. I feel it’s a bit like The Hours in that if they weren’t all in the same movie that all three female leads are award worthy but the movie has to pull for one of them. if i were nominating, i’d be nominating all three of them, with Weisz and Stone in supporting - though frankly they were pretty much three equal leads really.
The tone was perfect and Weisz got all the best put downs for me.
Every time Colman spoke to that poor footboy or whatever you call him, it made me laugh out loud. ‘Were you looking at me?’ ‘No’ ‘don’t look at me. Look at me. I said look at me. *looks at her* How dare you? Look away!’
WHAT A HOOT!
